We're All in this TogetherA Collaborative Skills Training Innovation is a team sport that requires extraordinary collaboration.
No collaboration, no innovation. It's that simple. You can have all the great game-changing ideas in the world, but unless you have a highly collaborative team able to communicate, develop, pilot, pitch, and execute on those ideas, you have nothing.

Yes, again? I thought so. There's a ton of reasons why most brainstorming sessions under-deliver, but the main reason -- the Mount Olympus of reasons (drum roll, please....) is the brainstorm facilitator.
